Designer Appreciation Week in Syosset

Nicole introducing me!

This past week was Designer Appreciation Week at Stark Syosset and it was a blast. Great job setting it up Nicole Passman!!! Those napkins (below) were awesome!

My first visit to Stark’s Syosset showroom was one to remember. There was tasty food, great company, and even a raffle! The showroom looks amazing and I’m so happy I got to personally meet about 20 designers who all shop at Stark.

I gave a 20 minute talk about who I am, what my role in the company is, and the direction Stark is heading in. Though there may have been some skeptics in the crowd, I think everyone was pleased with what  I had to say. Stark Home is not our way of trying to cut the decorator out, but it’s our way of empowering the decorator more than ever before!! That message was clear by the time I was done. If anyone wants to learn more, email me! Below are some pics of the event for your viewing pleasure. Sorry if they’re blurry!

Next up is Surfaces in Las Vegas. And some Chainsmokers at Marquee of course…

Stark loves designers!!

Successful Business Trip to Germany and London


IMG_0212There’s nothing like working over the weekend in another country….

I left for a quick 4 day business trip last Thursday afternoon for Domotex Hannover and to visit Stark’s London showroom and it couldn’t have gone better. Not only was it my first trip to both Hannover and London, but I also met so many great people in the flooring and design industries. We found some unique products at the show and had a great time in the city….It definitely helps that my hotel was a 3 minute walk away from the superclub FUN PARK!

It can be rough traveling so much and working during the weekends, but this trip was worth however tired I am today back in the NYC office. I just hope that next time I can do a little more site seeing…Can’t wait to expand my knowledge at other Domotex shows around the world!!!

Stark prepares for DOMOTEX

Image

As the new year rolls in, it’s time for me to leave the country again. This time, for the worlds premier flooring convention, DOMOTEX in Hannover, Germany.

With over 1,400 exhibitors from more than 60 countries DOMOTEX 2013 is set to be the most important event for the entire international flooring trade. It will again prove to be a unique marketplace for hand-made and machine-made carpets, textile floor coverings, resilient flooring, parquet and laminates, as well as application and installation technology and cleaning. At the same time, DOMOTEX is an unrivalled communication platform for visitors from the trade, the skilled trades and interior design. Trade visitors from all over the world come to DOMOTEX to learn about important trends, developments and topical issues at the exhibition and in a series of conferences, special displays and workshops.

I will be sure to post some pictures from the event. Our booth should be great!
